EPD Australasia

Holcim Australia first to receive process certification with EPD Australasia

To simplify the process for organisations in collecting data, conducting Life Cycle Assessments and developing EPDs on a large scale, EPD Australasia provides the the option of EPD Process Certification. To gain certification, an accredited certification body assesses an organisation’s internal procedures for developing and verifying EPDs and certifies these internal processes.

Once certified, an organisation may handle the management of EPD data involved in the verification procedure by themselves, issuing EPDs without a third-party verifier. Whilst the EPDs still need to be registered with EPD Australasia this makes the entire process more time and cost efficient for EPD owners.

Over the years, Holcim (Australia) have invested in embedding Life Cycle Assessment into their systems and processes and has recently become the first company to earn process certification with EPD Australasia. Congratulations!

The company’s two most recent EPDs for ViroDecs Special ready-mix concrete products were developed using Holcim’s EPD Process Certification. A first for this region.

“Holcim has been pleased by the positive response from the industry. The message was loud and clear: “we want transparency and we want an evidence-based approach to specification, procurement and reporting”. With the introduction of Holcim ViroDecs Special EPDs on-demand , Holcim’s customers can specify concrete sustainability performance in terms of CO2-e, with the confidence that our claims are backed by our EPD Process Certification.

Holcim’s ViroDecs Special EPD on-demand is backed by an EPD Process Certification. It’s not only a first for concrete but a first for any product in Australia. Our EPD Process Certification is a stamp of approval to produce compliant EPDs in-house, opening up significant capability and flexibility in producing and using life cycle impact data to inform our operations and our customers”
